Logging in to MDR using two-factor authentication (2FA)

Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security to MDR accounts, by requiring an authentication code in addition to MDR login credentials. 2FA requires downloading and installing the Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, or any two-factor TOTP (Time-Based One-Time Password Algorithm) authenticator app on a device such as a smartphone or computer. The authentication app generates a six-digit code each 30 seconds. To complete the MDR login, after entering the password, you will also have to provide a six-digit authentication code.

When connecting to MDR using 2FA, follow these steps:

  1. Go to https://mdr.bitdefender.com/en/login.

  2. Enter your MDR login credentials and click Log in.

  3. Enter the six-digit code from your authentication app.
